The Rooftop Revenant primarily deals with the fears that young adults live with; the fear of missing out, fear of missing the deadline, fear of heights, fear of being alone, fear of death, fear of overcoming fear, so on. Through a college student's castaway on the school rooftop, the film portrays an evolution--of an incomplete man. The juxtaposition of the tall grey buildings and the helplessness of a man on top of one of them makes quite a jarring image. For once, the man learns that the only way to overcome this fear generated by the modern civilization is to not go (or be taken) up any more but down (all by himself)--and to look straight down at the abyss with eagle's eyes. Still, the film questions how complete we can get after all. There are things we leave behind that might strike us back and things we try to perfect that won't be. Maybe we are all monkeys (still).
